Thank you to all the wonderful blood donors who volunteered their time to make a life-saving donation at the recent Osceola community blood drive.
A total of 44 people registered to donate blood and 34 units of blood were collected at this blood drive.
A special thanks also goes out to Marge Wambold and Osceola Lions Club for helping to organize and sponsor this blood drive. Committed volunteers are key to maintaining the blood supply in our local community.
